Camp begins today, December 27, so online workshop signups are now closed. Please use the yellow sticky notes at camp if you would like to lead a workshop. I will update the charts below every night ('round midnight), drawing information from the signup boards at camp.

See you at camp!

OK, so the daily schedules are now posted below. Please submit any additional requests here, and I'll add them to the schedules. I will close online submissions on Wednesday morning when I leave for camp. After that, please post workshops on yellow sticky notes on the workshop charts at camp, and I will transcribe them to a printed or phone edition every night at 11 PM, and I'll post and print them sometime before breakfast - whenever I get finished.

Here are links to the charts:
You may find the following links will work better on your phone:




Workshop venue descriptions from Patience:


    All workshop spaces have chairs that can be moved, stacked.
    Most spaces have a piano, which may or may not be properly tuned for playing.


    Hollidge Hall

                 A carpeted room seating up to 50 in straight chairs
        Acoustically isolated; good for any instrumental or singing workshop

                Restrooms adjacent, just outside the back door (covered access)
    [comparable to the Carpeted Room]


    Sun Room
    located in the Dining Hall building
    Circle of couches, plus straight chairs, seating 10-12 people
    Overflow option into or to the adjacent Fireplace Room if needed
    Restrooms just outside (covered access)
    [half the size of Ruben's living room with an expansion option]
      Observation from Jim Oakden: I've heard the end of the Dining Hall discussed as a workshop space. Its an excellent spot, with the caveats that it would require table moving and couldnt be used around mealtimes. It can get a little noisy during dishwashing times. The contiguous Sunroom is quite small with slouchy couches. Although there is a wall of windows between them, workshops or jams in both spots would conflict with each other. The opposite end of the dining hall is sufficiently acoustically isolated that you could probably do simultaneous things there and in the Sunroom with tolerable bleedover



    Helgesson Hall
    a light, spacious building with open-beamed ceiling and wood floors
    Stage at one end, fireplace with couches at the other.
    Good for larger workshops, dance and other
    Restrooms are across the path, in the Program Office building (not roofed between)
    [comparable to the Dance Hall]



    Program Office/Program Center
    seats 10-15 people, on padded benches against two walls, plus single chairs
    restrooms are just outside (not covered access)
    [larger than the Journalism Room]
      Caveat from Jim Oakden: The Program Center, while it can be crammed with 15 people, can't fit 15 musicians. Maybe 10 if they all played pennywhistle. If they played guitars or fiddles or such...8 or so. Its a good place for intimate old-time sessions, not so much for most other things.



    Cary Lodge Lounge
    seats 20 or so on couches and straight chairs
    circle of seating around coffee table, area rug
    woodburning stove
    Suitable for singing workshops; not appropriate for loud instruments
    restrooms are inside, down the hall
    [the Study Center with nicer atmosphere]



    Silverthorn Chapel
    a comfortable space for 30 people. Hexagonal room, 26 ft. across
    panoramic views of the surrounding forest
    acoustically isolated: appropriate for loud instruments
    suitable for small and gentle workshops (not for percussive dancing that could damage its fine wooden floor)
    NOTE:
    not fully accessible: unpaved path and stairs to reach it
    restrooms are at a distance, at dorms down the hill
    -a gem for those who can reach it (but note that there are accessibility issues)

I forgot to say that any day but Jan 1 will do.

Hi Joe! After checking the workshop schedule, I would like to request we have the "Songs Faith Petric Sang" workshop on Friday morning at 11:30. Hope it works out - I feel it's a good way to remember dear Faith.

Hi Joe,

I'd like to have a Redmond O'Colonies Memorial Joke Fest, at 4 or 5 pm on Friday. Perhaps a happy hour, BYOB. Parental discretion advised. We will be telling many jokes we remember that we learned from Redmond.

Thanks!
Perhaps in cabin 6?

Amy :)

You got it, Amy. Maybe you'd like to ask Bev & Jerry Praver to do a town crier announcement at the beginning? Just a suggestion, but I thought it would be nice since Redmond was a town crier of some note. Email me if you need help contacting Bev & Jerry.
joe@mudcat.org

I'm not going to post the schedule charts for a few weeks, but all of the above requests will get their wishes granted, as will most who post their wishes before Thanksgiving.

From: Pamela R
Date: 30 Sep 17 - 05:59 PM

Hi Joe,
I'll be attending camp for the first time this year. If you like I could do a workshop on "Divergent Variants" - comparing amazingly different versions of very old traditional songs/ballads that were collected in different parts of England, Scotland, Ireland, Appalachia; maybe even versions from New England, Canada, Australia. This could easily fill two hours since ballads are long and there are lots of really cool variants to explore. I hope participants would contribute variants; to avoid duplications, I would coordinate that a bit in advance.

Or, I could lead a one-hour workshop on "The Broadside Side of Ballads" -- ballads many of us know from oral tradition that also had a parallel/intersecting life in very old cheap street literature (broadsides, chapbooks). I could explain a bit about that history and bring facsimiles of actual broadsides for the group to sing together. Yes, singing from the page! (a thing I normally don't.)

Or, I could do a mini-concert if people want me to.

Depending on the camp's needs and preferences I'm glad to do any one or two, but preferably not all three of the above.

Scheduling: I'm hoping to be there the whole time but it is possible I will have to arrive a day late or leave a day early to meet family obligations, which I won't know until early December. So if you make the schedule before then, a midweek time slot would be preferred. Any time of day is fine, but please try not to overlap other ballad-themed workshops.

Best,
Pamela Reinagel


Revised scheduling request - please schedule my ws and miniconcert on thurs or fri.
Will be leaving sometime Saturday.
P.


Hi Joe,
Per our earlier conversation I believe I committed to do a mini-concert and a workshop on the Broadside Side of Ballads. Have been waiting to hear from you about the rooms and times -- am I supposed to select them?

Seconding the request to see the current draft of the schedule with whatever times and rooms have already been committed to others so far.

From the room descriptions, it sounds like Cary Lodge Lounge or the Sun Room would be good for the broadside ballad workshop. I would prefer not to conflict with Sadie's workshops or anything else "ballads". (Sadie, I wasn't scheduled for the "Divergent Versions" workshop, but if you run a workshop on that theme I would be happy to help out).

Shoshanna - I see you've requested a daily space for "Irish". may I ask what that means? (session tunes? dancing? Irish language? group singing? sean nos songs?...)

Best,
Pamela.

Hi, Pamela. Nice to meet you on the phone. I'll probably put you down for a mini-concert and the broadsides session. I'll let one of our old-timers make sure that an adequate number of ballads sessions are scheduled.
See you in December.

I have not been able to load the mudcat page on my mobile device.
I would like to add two separate hours of workshops preferably not opposite triple crown or meals in the main a capella singing space.

Will try to also add this to the mudcat page another time.
Can you help with this?
Thank you.

This year's San Francisco Camp New Harmony is Wednesday 12/27/17 to Monday 1/1/18

Registrations open on or about Sept 16, and close on or about Dec 1.

More news as it happens. Watch this space.

I won't post the workshop calendars until early November, but feel free to post your workshops now, if you like.

See you at camp!

From Camp Newman's Facebook page 9 October 2017:
    UPDATE:
    As many of you may have heard, since 10pm last night, forest fires have been burning in Sonoma and Napa counties. It is with tremendous shock and sadness that we share that the majority of the buildings at our beloved Camp Newman home have been destroyed.
    Right now, the reports are that the fires in the area are still burning. As you might assume, information coming out of the area right now is spotty. Our staff has not been able to visit camp, and may not be able to for a few days. We will, of course, provide you with more information as it becomes available. Please continue to check Facebook for ongoing updates.
    Most importantly, we take great comfort in knowing that all of our staff are safe. We are so grateful to the first responders and firefighters who attempted to save our camp buildings. We are keeping these heroic and hardworking people in our thoughts and prayers as they continue to work to protect the people and the places in our Camp Newman neighborhood, for whom we will continue to pray. If you have evacuated your home and need a safe place with power and water, you can visit our wonderful Reform synagogue close to camp, Congregation Shomrei Torah.
    We have been so moved by your outpouring of love, support and concern for camp. It is a powerful reminder that Camp is about our holy community, our kehillah kedosha.
    In the weeks to come, we will share more details about our plans for the future. We will also provide a way for your children and teens to process this news, and how you can help.
    Thank you for keeping Camp Newman and the beautiful land it occupies in your hearts and thoughts.
    To all those who love Camp Newman and our community, together we will go from strength to strength,
    Ruben Arquilevich, Rabbi Erin Mason, Michelle Tandowsky, and the entire URJ Camp Newman team and Advisory Board
The news sounds bad, but the camp committee will wait a few days and not make a decision until we get more specific information from the Camp Newman staff. The camp has built ten or so new cabins over the last five years, and a lovely health and welcome center. These new buildings are in spaces that are very "defensible," so maybe they survived. There are many other buildings that go back to the time when the camp was a military cooking school, and those buildings are in much more vulnerable locations. I'm hoping against hope, I suppose, but I think it's a good idea to wait until we get solid information.

Well, we have a new location for Camp New Harmony. It will be at Camp Monte Toyon (click) at Aptos, just south of Santa Cruz. This camp is much smaller than we're used to, so registrations will be limited. We won't reopen registration until we've confirmed that everyone who has already registered, will be accommodated. Give us a week or two. Then we'll have a limited "early bird" discount period.
It's a beautiful camp in a beautiful location. Not a bad drive from the Bay Area, but tough on us Sacramento folks.
-Joe-


Here's the official word on the new location for Camp Harmony:

    On Wednesday, October 25, 2017, 10:05:44 PM PDT, Margaret Miles via Harmony wrote:


    As you are probably aware, Camp Newman will not be availablefor this year's Camp Harmony due to the devastating fires. We are grateful that staff were safely evacuated, and the camp is planning to rebuild.
    We are very sad to lose a place with so many happy memories, but we agree with the Camp Newman staff who said that community is more about the people than the place, and so the Camp Harmony Committee has worked to find a solution so we can still hold our annual community gathering.

    We are very pleased to announce that we will be holding Camp Harmony at Monte Toyon this year.? We researched and evaluated a number of alternative locations. Monte Toyon, located near Aptos, is available during the dates for Camp Harmony, is within our price range, and has facilities that are accessible for our members.? Please visit their website http://www.uccr.org/camp/ monte-toyonfor details about the facility.

    Given the short notice, we are very fortunate that Monte Toyon staff are willing to give up their normal winter vacation to make their camp available to us, so please be sure to thank them.

    While there was no site with all the advantages of Camp Newman, the committee felt it would be better to have a camp with limitations than no camp at all. The site is a beautiful spot in the redwoods. But it is smaller than Camp Newman and has room for far fewer campers.? There are no private rooms, and some people will have to sleep in upper bunks. Most likely, everyone will have to share a room with at least 2 or 3 others.

    All bedroom buildings have men's and women's bathrooms with showers within the building. There is an option to sleep off site with meals served on site, at a lower cost. There are also a very few spots for tents, but at the same fee as those sleeping in bunks. RVs are not permitted.

    The site's accessibility for people with mobility or other limitations is generally very good, and the kitchen will accommodate dietary restrictions.

    We have sent emails to all who have already registered,offering them the option to keep, cancel, or modify their reserved place. Thosewho cancel by the deadline stated in the email will receive a full refund.

    Once we've heard from those already registered, we will reopen registration. Since space is limited at our temporary alternate location, people who register after camp is full will be put on a waiting list pending additional cancellations. Please check the Harmony listserv, the sffmc.org website, and the SFFMC Facebook page for the latest information.
    We have everything set up with Camp Monte Toyon at Aptos, but we still have a lot of decisions to make. Aptos is just outside Santa Cruz, so it's a 5-hour drive for me instead of three. I haven't seen Monte Toyon, but I understand it's an absolutely beautiful camp set in the redwoods. The buildings are close together, so we will not have a camp bus this year. The chapel is not completely accessible, but we think people should not have any trouble getting to other buildings.

    Registration has reopened, but space is limited. As of this morning, there were only 46 spaces left. We could not continue the "early bird" registration discount because Camp Monte Toyon charges us more than Camp Newman did. The rate for 6 days of camp is $510. There is some campership money available for those who cannot afford the full fee.
    Details (and camp photos) at http://sffmc.org/ - click on the "Camp New Harmony" link.

    I'm not ready to post the schedule grids for workshops yet. We're having a camp committee meeting on Monday, and I'm hoping we will be able to decide about workshop times and venues then. If you'd like to lead a workshop, please post your requests now, and I'll put them on the schedule once I get a working schedule set up. Please post your first and last name, name of the workshop (no more than FOUR words), description of the workshop, and the day and time of day you'd like. Workshops will be on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - from about 9 AM to 6 PM, give or take an hour.

    For now, all requests for workshops will be accommodated. I'll let you know in this thread when things get tight and some workshop times will be limited. But for now, we have lots of times and lots of spaces. I'll update this message early next week after our meeting, when I know more about workshop times and spaces.

    See you at camp.

I was daydreaming about using my airline miles to attend Camp New Harmoney, but this page:

https://www.sffmc.org/harmony_body.html

says that registration for Camp New Harmony for one or more days is full. There's a waiting list.

Apparently registration for 0 days is still open, but that would be a long way to travel.   :)

Yeah, we were afraid we'd fill up. Camp Newman had a capacity of 600. I think we got to 300 a few nights when we were there, but averaged about 250. The capacity of Camp Monte Toyon is 146.
I'm thinking the first night to fill up will be New Year's Eve, December 31. There may be open days earlier in the week.
I don't think Camp Newman will be rebuilt in time for our 2018-2019 camp. but maybe the next year - but it could be that we will find a large-enough camp foir 2018-19, since we have a year to look. We found Monte Toyon in about two weeks, and then took another couple weeks to work out the details. I think we did pretty well, given our short deadline.
We're sure going to miss Camp Newman. I hope to be able to drive to Newman in the spring and get an idea of the fire damage for myself.

I know there are less workshop spaces at MT? and also Paul Kostka is not going this year, but I am? and I?d like to make sure there?s a place to play Irish. Hard to tell how many people? maybe a space for up to 10? What do you think?

Hi Joe,

I thought I sent you a message a couple of days ago, but don't see it here.

I would like to facilitate two 2-hour workshops this year, one on Friday and one on Saturday. They should be in a location where people could sit in a circle of chairs, with perhaps some table space available also. I don't expect more than 10 people would be coming to either.

1. Appalachian Dulcimer: Learn the nitty-gritty of dulcimer playing in the first hour: How to tune, hold, strum, note, and finger-pick it. Some instruments provided. In the second hour, we will share music in a "play-around" (a song circle with dulcimers--lead, request, demonstrate, or pass on your turn) with each other. Some dulcimers provided. Other instruments welcome, but please play at a beginner, novice, or low-intermediate speed.

2. Ancient Music, with Frame Drums and Native American Flutes. Everyone can claim their birthright to music by learning to play these simple instruments. First hour: Learn the basics of frame-drum playing, including several universal rhythms; and begin playing the minor pentatonic scale on the NA flute, accompanying the heart-beat rhythm. Drums, some flutes (D-min and A-min), and other percussion provided. Second hour: An improvisational flute/drum (and voice) circle, with everyone sharing their own music within. Drum jam, create soundscapes, ask for accompaniment to your own songs and poetry--it's all up to you. Same instruments available, or bring your own membranophonic, aerophonic, or ambient instruments.

    Hi, Kathryn!
    Appalachian Dulcimer Friday 4:15, Program Center
    Ancient Music Saturday 4:15, Program Center.
    I sure enjoyed your Ukulele Kindergarten last year.

If I was there I'd lead a workshop on Sea Chanteys from Lichtenstein.


    And all of us, your adoring fans, would be there in rapt attention. Come back to Camp Harmony, Peter. We need you!

    P.S. I got really close to Liechtenstein when I was in Switzerland last year, but I couldn't find any reason to go any closer....

Hi Joe,

Could you please move the Songwriter Song Swap to Cary Lodge at 4:15 on Thursday and move the Plowshares workshop to Cary Lodge at 1:45 on Sunday? The Sun Room is too small.

Thanks so much!

- Susan

    Workshops moved as requested. -Joe-

I'm up-to-date with all messages posted above, except that I haven't heard specific information from Amelia about what workshops she wants to do where.
Please note that we have fewer and smaller workshop spaces than we had at Camp Newman, although I understand that the spaces are generally nicer than the venue spaces at Newman. We also have 100 fewer campers, so attendance at workshops should be smaller than at Newman. Nonetheless, there will be heavy demand for spaces such as Hollidge Hall and Helgesson Hall, and perhaps the Cary Lodge Lounge. We may have to do some juggling to make things work.

Just want to check that there will be some sort of armless (folding?) chairs available in addition to the than couches in Cary. Thanks.
    Dunno, Susan - I got the impression there are lots of portable, armless chairs in all venues, but I may be wrong. -Joe-

Can you change the name of Sadie's workshop on Divergent Ballads to Divergent Versions of Ballads or the like? That is how she refers to it and it makes sense. Having Versions in there is important. Divergent Ballads didn't make sense to me.

Agreed - I believe "Divergent Versions" was the title I originally proposed for that workshop.

Sadie: since we are up on Thursday morning, and you offered to work with me on that, can you either PM me or email me so we can coordinate? I see that someone else is doing an entire Child#200 workshop so we should leave that ballad alone. Since I am new to this event I don't know what others might have been recently exhausted. A few suggestions: Barbara Allen, Sprig of Thyme, Twa Sisters; and for a non-Child-ballad, how about the family of songs in which the sailor/soldier returns in disguise and tells his waiting love that her lover is dead just to test her? (Roud 264,266,622,714,960: Pretty Fair Miss in her Fathers Garden, Servant in her Master's Garden, Mantle so Green, Banks of Claudy, Plains of Waterloo, etc).

Pamela

    Fixed. -Joe-

BTW does anyone local (driving) to Camp Harmony have a 15-chord O.S. Autoharp I can borrow during camp? Mine is too large/heavy to bring on the flight. Though it would be fun to try out a 21-chord or diatonic AH I am only conversant with the 15-bar kindergarten teacher model.

(amending the above - of course, Sprig of Thyme is not a Child Ballad either, in fact not even a ballad. But a song with divergent versions for sure)

I assume that more workshops will happen at camp. Some others I'd like to see would be:
Songs 1) of the Old West/Cowboy Songs 2) Outlaws, Scallywags, just plain Bad Dudes and Dudettes 3) of the 19th Century - Civil War/Mining/S. Foster/Old South 4) from the Seven Seas, at least mention the wet stuff. I might kick one or more of these off although I'd be perfectly content to have someone else step up to the plate.

Sorry for the late requests. Saturday is the day for Broadway sing-along, though hard to stay out of the way of John Barleycorn. Let's try for Saturday 11:00 in Program Center (there is a a piano) or 1:45 in Cary Lodge. 1 hr is OK.

I'd like to do Old Time Piano Backup at 5:30 in the Program Center, or Helgesson Hall if Prog Ctr not available. I see that Thursday and Sunday 5:30 could work. Try for 11:00 on Friday. Saturday, we'll try to figure something out, or not do it.

Thanks.


    You've got me confused, Kathrine - but I did the best I could. I put Broadway at 11 in the Program Center on Saturday, and Old Time Piano Backup on Thursday and Sunday at 5:30 PM in the Program Center. When you get to camp, please check out the venues and make sure they will work for you.

I will write this on the board when I get there, but for inquiring minds who want to know: Pamela and Sadie's "Divergent Versions" workshop will cover the following four songs:

Twa Sisters
Cruel Mother
Barbara Allen
Sprig of Thyme

The leaders will start off by singing one version of the song and then participants will be invited to share a different version if they know one.

*If you have a version you really want to sing let me know in advance, and we'll avoid singing that one to lead off, and call on you first in the circle.

Somebody at camp asked that I post the lyrics for the Pete Seeger / Lorre Wyatt song "Wonderful Friends" at Mudcat. Here it is:
It's a great song, and it sums up what a wonderful time we had at Camp New Harmony this year.
